    Brackets for sewer hose storage tube

    Our 351M is currently in storage for the winter. We stopped the other day to measure a few things and noticed the sewer hose storage tube hanging down on one side. On further inspection the bracket was completely broken and the other side is also cracked. Has anyone else had the brackets fail? Is there anyplace to purchase the mounting brackets without purchasing a new storage tube? I plan on adding a second storage tube at some point, it just wasn't n the list of things to do this spring, so any help in finding brackets would be appreciated. Thanks.

    To each their own, but if a one year old bracket broke with no unreasonable treatment, I would not use the same type bracket again. Maybe consider just using galvanized 'AllRound' metal strapping? Give it a little black paint and it will not be noticed.
    Something like this?

    Here are some other threads about storage tubes...

    Those might give you a few ideas.

    A lot of us ditched that tube in favor of a 5" PVC fence post mounted (securely) to the frame.

    The brackets fail due to line workers using an oversized self-tapping screw driven with complete disregard to perpendicularity and torque. Mounted correctly, we had one of the tubes ride a trouble-free decade all over N. America... Ours on the Solitude lasted two trips before the mount broke on one side. I got a new tube under warranty but found the end cap brackets very cheap on ebay and fixed the original. So we have two mounted. All the alternatives mentioned are great options too!

    Thanks to all for the great replies and links, much appreciated. I will probably just replace the brackets for now and make sure not to over-torque them.
